Thanks very much :-)

Wow, wonderful find and capture; I’ve never seen one with this colouration before!
Thanks Daniel…I think perhaps this is a male as I have witnessed this species mating three times this past Summer and the darker ones like this one are a bit smaller and always on top of the larger all yellow ones.
Superb capture Gary…did you use your external flash on this one?
Thanks very much and yes the Canon 580 EX fired at -1 compensation for this shot.
Thanks Ted :-)
Many thanks for the feature :-)
Excellent image Gary!! beautifully composed.
Thanks Daniel and this guy did not stay in this position long and flew a few feet away to get closer to a female. I see your semi just got featured at Canon DSLR….whoa!!
Super catch – what an interesting bug!
Wonderfully cool shot, nicely done
